Over the years, Razer has spread its wings and expanded into much more than just mice and keyboards for gamers. This, however, may be one of its most broad initiatives to date.

Some enterprising hacker decided to test out gaming accessory maker Razer’s UK Razerzone store shopping cart by dropping in a 90% off coupon code. Then, the coupon code went viral, and people started buying Razer gear at firesale prices. Once Razer finally discovered the code, it quickly removed the company but was left with a very expensive mess. What’s a company to do? Retract all those sales and make everyone mad, or eat the cost? Razer is taking the latter path. “While we have the option of cancelling the orders legally, we’ve always had a customer comes first policy... Read more...

Plenty of folks thought that Razer was blowing smoke when it announced that it was developing a high end gaming tablet, dubbed Project Fiona, at last year’s CES. A year later, lo and behold, the company has a whole booth full of them at CES 2013. And the device is gorgeous. After garnering loads of input from actual PC gamers, Razer put together what is, in the most basic sense, a 10.1-inch tablet, albeit one loaded with high-end hardware and also essentially a Windows 8 PC and a portable gaming console, all wrapped up in one device.

Gamers who have been around the block a time or two may remember a vaunted product by Belkin -- something called the Nostromo SpeedPad n52.

Razer's not one to let a huge chunk of time fly by without introducing a new mouse. This week, it's introducing the updated Razer Orochi mobile gaming mouse, which boasts a 6400dpi sensor.

The gaming peripheral gurus at Razer announced today the revamping of its popular DeathAdder mouse, though don't worry if you've grown accustomed to the original model, this isn't a complete redesign. Instead, Razer focused its efforts on upgrading the sensor and making the side grips more comfortable.

A poster on an overclocking forum is drawing widespread Internet attention over claims that Razer's Naga mouse requires a persistent Internet connection in order for it to work properly. The special drivers supposedly require that Naga owners create an account with Razer before they're allowed to configure the mouse, and if Razer's servers go down -- as they were when "channelx99" tried to activate his account -- well, tough luck. Channelx99 is referring to Razer's Synapse 2.0 software in his forum post. Without it, you can still use the Naga mouse, you just can't customize all those fancy extra... Read more...
